01 Project Overview

Finneytown Local Schools embarked on a high-performance learning process to develop a comprehensive district-wide educational vision and educational specifications for new school facilities to house K-6 students.

The district’s instructional programs, delivery methods, integration of technology and future student needs were reviewed. With the onset of COVID, an alternative approach to school planning was developed by our team which allowed input from teachers, staff, students and administrators  into the facility planning process. Fanning Howey worked with local partner emersion DESIGN to develop the design of this high performing learning environment.

03 Services & Recognition

In addition to the emersionDesign / Fanning Howey team’s sustainability and wellness leadership, their experience navigating the ELPP process with OFCC proved to be invaluable. They quickly understood our needs and presented them in a way to OFCC that will place us in the best position to realize our long-term Master Plan goals and maximize our state co-funded dollars when we become a CFAP district.
